Sanofi Promise: A Warranty Program for CABLIVI | CABLIVI reimbursement
Sanofi is committed to individuals living with acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (aTTP/iTTP)
and the healthcare professionals who support them.
As part of this commitment, the cost of CABLIVI will be refunded in the hospital setting for up to six (6) inpatient doses for patients who fail to reach initial clinical response to CABLIVI or up to twelve (12) inpatient doses for patients who exacerbate while on CABLIVI treatment, as defined by the program terms. Additional Eligibility Requirements, Terms and Conditions apply. CABLIVI must be administered according to the FDA-approved label (Prescribing Information). Refund amount will be up to the wholesale acquisition cost (WAC) or actual acquisition cost, whichever is less.
The first evidence-based guidelines for aTTP/iTTP recommend CABLIVI,* the first and only FDA-approved therapy for adults in combination with PEX and immunosuppressive therapy, for acute aTTP/iTTP events—initial and relapsing.
*A conditional recommendation defined as desirable effects of the recommendation probably outweighing the undesirable effects. Assumes timely access to ADAMTS13 testing and clinical diagnosis based on high likelihood of aTTP/iTTP. In de novo patients where no reasonable access to ADAMTS13 activity testing is available, the Guidelines do not recommend CABLIVI; however, treatment of a patient previously diagnosed with aTTP/iTTP could be safely undertaken on clinical grounds without the need for a confirmatory ADAMTS13 test.33
If a patient is non-responsive to CABLIVI treatment within the inpatient setting, your institution may be eligible for a refund
CABLIVI must be administered in the US and prescribed according to its FDA-approved label (Prescribing Information). CABLIVI treatment must be discontinued at the discretion of the healthcare provider for one of the following reasons:
Additional Eligibility Requirements, Terms and Conditions apply. Please see the full Terms and Conditions below.

Additional Terms and Conditions
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
IN NO EVENT, UNDER ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OF THEORY OF LIABILITY, SHALL SANOFI, ITS DISTRIBUTORS OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROGRAM, EVEN IF SANOFI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANY DAMAGES THAT YOU MIGHT INCUR FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL DAMAGES REFERENCED HEREIN AND ALL DIRECT OR GENERAL DAMAGES IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, THE ENTIRE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF SANOFI AND ANY OF ITS DISTRIBUTORS AND/OR SUPPLIERS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT SET FORTH ABOVE FOR THE PRODUCT THAT IS SUBJECT TO THE PROGRAM. SOME STATES AND/OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH ABOVE SHALL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
ARBITRATION: Read the following arbitration provision (“Provision”) carefully. It limits certain of your rights, including your right to obtain relief or damages through court action.
To begin Arbitration, either you or we must make a written demand to the other party for arbitration for the applicable claim (“Claim”). The Arbitration will take place before a single arbitrator. It will be administered in keeping with the Expedited Procedures of the Commercial Arbitration Rules (“Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in effect when the Claim is filed. You may get a copy of these AAA’s Rules by visiting www.adr.org. The filing fees to begin and carry out arbitration will be shared equally between you and us. This does not prohibit the arbitrator from giving the winning party their fees and expenses of the arbitration. Unless you and we agree, the arbitration will take place in the county and state where you live. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Ch. 1, et seq., will govern and not any state law on arbitration. YOU AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT this arbitration provision means that you give up your right to go to court on any Claim covered by this provision. You also agree that any arbitration proceeding will only consider your Claim. Claims by, or on behalf of, other individuals will not be arbitrated in any proceeding that is considering your Claims. THE DEGREE TO WHICH ARBITRATION CAN BE USED AS A DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCESS FOR CONSUMER CLAIMS VARIES FROM STATE TO STATE, SO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, DEPENDING ON YOUR STATE OF RESIDENCE. In the event this Arbitration provision is not approved by the appropriate state regulatory agency, and/or is stricken, severed, or otherwise deemed unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, you and us specifically agree to waive and forever give up the right to a trial by jury. Instead, in the event any litigation arises between you and us, any such lawsuit will be tried before a judge, and a jury will not be impaneled or struck.
Sanofi is committed to ensuring all patients with aTTP/iTTP have access to treatment with CABLIVI.
The information below will help guide you in obtaining coverage for your patients.
†This information is subject to change and providers should consult relevant references for the description of each code to determine its appropriateness. Use of the information below does not guarantee that the payer will provide coverage for CABLIVI and is not intended to be a substitute for, or an influence on, the independent medical judgment of the prescriber.
The codes discussed below are provided for informational purposes only, are subject to change, and should not be construed as legal advice. The codes listed herein may not apply to all patients or to all health plans. Conversely, additional codes not listed may apply to some patients.
For patients covered by Medicare, drug costs for doses administered in the hospital are typically included in the MS-DRG payment and are covered under Medicare Part A. After inpatient discharge, most patients will self-administer CABLIVI at home; these drug costs are expected to be covered under the Medicare Part D (pharmacy) benefit.
The 3 MS-DRGs that represent the greatest number of potential patients who may be eligible for treatment involving CABLIVI are shown in the table below.
Connective Tissue Disorders With MCC
Connective Tissue Disorders With CC
Connective Tissue Disorders Without CC/MCC
This may not be reflective of all MS-DRG codes that may be used for CABLIVI. The DRG code is determined by the payer based on the primary diagnosis.
The specifics of coverage may vary by payer. Please refer to the individual patient's plan to determine any applicable coverage requirements.
There is no specific ICD-10-CM code for aTTP. Providers should always review payer-specific materials and use their own clinical judgment when submitting claims for use of CABLIVI.
